Wedding planning process can be so tedious and most brides leave the most, if not all, of the planning process in the hands of the wedding planners. For those who do not want to employ the services of a wedding co-ordinator, they entrust the planning processes in the hands of their mothers, sisters, in-laws or vendors.
Some brides have shared with us some of their regrets on one of the most important days of their lives….
So, what were their regrets?
There were loads of regrets! My camera didn’t cover some event, there were no pictures of my female friends and I. Also, no photos of my family and my husband. It was so annoying
Mine was that the cake designer was not able to present the cake.
My make up artist was a disaster, I was forced to look like a monster.
My handbag and my shoe did not match each other that was the only regret I had. Every other thin was perfect.
Hmmm,the car I booked for the Registry disappointed me, l later settled for an old golf. I wept all through and you can imagine what that would do to my make-up.
The M.C didn’t show up and we had to quickly organize someone else, gosh it was almost a mess because the person we got was an amateur….I cried and cried.
Mine was my white wedding cake. Oh My God! Don’t want to remember. The cake designer messed up. *Crying*
Mine was my bead which was wireworks…I should have just made and wore the normal bead. Wanted something different but but I didn’t like the way it looked on my neck and my MC was not fun at all
My tailor made her choice with the material I gave her after all the time I took to explain what I wanted to her, and when I complained, she was like she actually saw it on someone and liked it so she decided to make what she likes for me. I felt like tearing her apart and it was just a day to my traditional wedding. So annoying how people can spoil someone’s special day.
My caterer messed me up. Infact I cried after my wedding, she stole everything. Big thief! I will never recommend her.
If I could, I would arrest the MC and slap the DJ. They almost dulled my guests and I.
My bridal train dresses were flopped. The tailor sewed virtually rubbish. It hurts me when I flip through the pictures and remember this.
I booked for a burgundy and cream aso oke for the traditional wedding a day to the wedding. Lo and behold, he brought a burgundy and lemon aso oke. There was no way I could change it in a short notice.
My cake got missing and I was left with one little cake to cut. It was a mess! How do you explain this to your guests?
I did not inform many people about the day and I regret it when friends and family put the blame on me.
No regrets except for the camera man that missed most of the event in the DVD.
We started our traditional wedding late and white wedding was a military wedding and I was unable to take much pictures as expected because the military took over earlier.
I got married last year December and my regret was that I didn’t get enough pose for pictures both for traditional and white wedding. My photographer was just too slow, he was no where to be found there after I changed into wedding dress for church service
My cake decorator delivered the worst wedding cake ever but I still managed to smile all through the ceremony.
I lost some weight due to stress and my dress was loose. I couldn’t remove my jacket for the reception. But it didnt stop me from dancing . The M.C SHAKIRA made my day he was too much. I danced with bathroom slippers. FUN.
My wedding video did not have voice and the camera man did not detect the fault until after the wedding. It’s still painful till date.
Almost every thing was messed up. My wedding dress was picked by my almighty sis-in-law, camera man was busy videoing the sun and people’s legs, the cold van did not show up the DJ is another story, wedding cake came with a different colour. chai….but I thank God because my anniversary will make it up.
I chose a wrong attire for my last outing for the traditonal wedding. The DJ was playing rubbish throughout…He played my tribal songs all true, but my white was what I wanted. All praise to God, it is history now.
On my traditional wedding day, I thought it was going to be an in house thing but it turned out much bigger than we envisaged, so we had to do last minute arrangements. On my white wedding, the printer delivered our programs in the middle of service so we had to do a very familiar hymn for the groom to walk in. At the reception venue, the person that was in charge of the tables kept water glasses for us, so we toasted with water glasses instead of wine glasses. All that is history now.
My wedding was last year and the delay first came from my husband because he came late. Also, there was another delay from my dad because he said his friends had to be seated before they start anything. The caterer forgot the cutout in a public bus, thank God it’s not the whole cake. The M.C was the funniest because he was just jumping and skipping programs but thank God it was a great day in my life and am happy with my marriage.
Mine was that we had enough wines and cups but the M.C skipped toast on the program. Really mad at him. Lol
Out of 24 bridesmaids I selected, only 8 showed up and none of my church members witnessed it because we got married in my husband’s church. Thanks to God for everything.
I got married just last week saturday, I cried all through the church services because my family were not around no family member were around to take me into the church. They did that because my father was not in town, but I give God all the glory because it was a success.
It rained super heavily on my wedding day. I was frustrated because it almost spoiled my day but thank God for making it possible at last.
My cake was brought in very late and funny enough, the caterer baked rubbish.
My photographer came very late and spoilt the day. I was furious at him that all the pictures he later took I was a angry bride in it.
I got late because there was so much traffic on our way to the reception venue. My guests were all seated and I was so hungry the ushers forgot to serve us.
My regret was my camera man. I regret using him. He did not capture some events and it was a poor coverage. My decoration was not done properly as I had expected and I paid a lot. Well I am now married no regrets but will correct all that when I celebrate my wedding anniversary. It may be funny to those still single, trust me it is not funny at the initial time it happens.
My biggest regret was that I had to do the wedding without my parents because they had visa problem and they could not reach Nigeria on time. I was missing my family throughout the wedding.
Mine was the pictures I took, they weren’t okay at all. I could not show my wedding album to people and another thing was that the food was not sufficient.
Mine was the photographer. He didn’t take any good picture of my husband and I. Now I don’t have any picture that is worth enlarging and framing.
My step mum-in-law was out to ruin the day but God pass her.
No regret……it is only that my shoe and my handbag did not match each other because I was seriously sick and admitted in the hospital three weeks before the wedding and discharged a day to wedding day.
